“A lively and hilarious night paying homage to your favorite portrayals of science onscreen.”

Science plays a pivotal role in some of pop culture’s biggest films and TV shows; like Stranger Things, Westworld, Jurassic Park, and even Luke Cage got his powers from science. Yet, is there real science involved, or is it just science fiction?

Science on Tap‘s latest event explores that very question! Science on Tap presents Untapped Ruins Everything on August 13th at Penn Museum from 6:00- 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased on their Eventbrite page.

Science on Tap: Untapped Ruins Everything will be breaking down how science is represented in pop culture. They will have some amazing speakers to help you figure out the “weird science.”  They will answer questions like: Does the parallel universe theory really explain the Upside Down on Stranger Things? Is Tyrannosaurus vision really based on movement like in Jurassic Park? Is Bones right? Can a forensic anthropologist really tell if a bone is real just by licking it?

Speakers include:

Nicole Altman-Museum Specialist, Independence National Historical Park
Katy Blanchard-Keeper of the Near Eastern Collections at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology
Anna N. Dhody-Curator, Mütter Museum, and Director, Mütter Research Institute
Elisabeth Berry Drago-Public History Fellow, Science History Institute
Aaron Lawson – Museum Educator, Wagner Free Institute of Science
Timshel Purdum-Assistant Vice President, Public Experience at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University

Science on Tap will have some tasty treats (included with ticket purchase) and a cash bar during the event.

Cosplay is highly encouraged! Come dressed as your favorite film or TV character doing science and you can win some awesome prizes.
